Rounds


 
Round universe, where only spheres can range
Though sizes differ and the colours change:
The sun, the moon, the stars, the heavy earth
That draped itself in oceans at its birth,
Eternal love allows each to possess
All properties of roundness, nothing less.
And this same love winds up the world, its clock,
And teaches months and years the way to walk . . .

 
“Emblem 51”
